The committee is asking staff members, parents, students and community members to provide suggestions for the school name. The committee (comprised of representatives from SRVUSD schools, the City of San Ramon, the San Ramon Valley Historical Society and the local parent community) will take all the suggestions submitted, and work through a process to decide on a name for the school to submit to the Board of Education for its approval.
According to Board of Education policy, new schools can be named within the following criteria:
- In recognition of the geographic area in which the school or building is located
- In recognition of individuals who have made contributions of state, national or worldwide significance
- In recognition of individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the county or community
- No school facility will be given the name of a commercial development unless the name existed in the area prior to the development.
